San Carlos Cemetery, Monterey

San Carlos Cemetery, Monterey

Originally this cemetery was established in 1834. It was called San Carlos Borromeo de Carmelo. It comprises 13.5 acres and is located in central Monterey. This is the central cemetery, but not the only one. Lately, a lot of outdoor crypts have been built, making the scene nicer, filled up the open spaces with some nice architecture. It is obvious that this is not a fun place to be, but it is a place of everyday life, a quiet place, where locals come to commemorate their relatives and friends.
